Book of Mormon


A show that I'd wanted to see for some time, that friends had raved over, but where I just couldn't get a ticket. So with the evening shows still mostly booked up I decided to go to the daytime matinee and can finally join the group of people who have loved this show.

The basic story is a around a pair of newly qualified Mormons who are sent to Uganda to spread their message, a country where people are dealing more with poverty, aids and the risk of attack of a local crime lord.

Yes it's wrong, but you wouldn't expect anything more from the writers of South Park, but the digs at organised at religion are so intelligently done that there's no challenge that can be made to what they're saying.

The success of this show both in the US and the UK can only be a good thing!
